Ok, I need some second and third opinions on this one.......

A year ago I had a new clutch put in my 1972 B.  2 weeks ago the throw out
bearing went out.  The guy at the shop said that the clutch had been used as
a foot rest.  Sure, there were times driving it where the car was drivin
with the foot being held up just in front of the clutch pedal and when on a
hill at a stop light where the clutch was partially disengaged with some
throttle to hold the car in place.  But how could the bearing have worn all
the way through in just over a year when the first clutch lasted 25 years?
